Aircast Air-Stirrup Ankle Brace Aircast® Air-Stirrup® Ankle Brace

Introduction


Each Air-Stirrup® Ankle Brace features anatomically designed shells lined with the patented Duplex™ aircell system. This exclusive system incorporates two pre-inflated overlapping aircells, distal and proximal, that provide support and produce graduated compression during ambulation. The compression promotes efficient oedema reduction in addition to helping accelerate rehabilitation.

All Air-Stirrup® Ankle Braces (except for the pediatric model) come with a patient guide providing information on brace application and optional rehabilitation exercises.
